Player Ratings – Chelsea FC v Norwich City
Chelsea played their last Home game of the season against Norwich City who’s fighting for relegation survival, hoping to get a win after back-to-back lost at home.
Many Chelsea fans expected it to be an easy win for the boys in Blues, in what was a tightly contested game. Norwich City were Solid at the back and were able to prevent the Blue Boys from Scoring as the match ended in a goaless draw.
This result further put Chelsea’s title chances beyond doubt.
Nonetheless, this are my players rating:
Mark Schwarzer – 6.5/10
Schwazer took the No. 1 position again, as Cech is still unable to play because of an injury. Schwarzer was rarely troubled as the Norwich attackers created few clear-cut chances in front of goal. Nonetheless, Kudos to him for keeping a clean sheet.
Branislav Ivanovic – 6.5/10
Ivanovic was solid at the back and was also influential going forward as Chelsea tried to break the Norwich defense. It was indeed a fine showing from the Serbian.
